Subject: wow just as good as it looks
how many times did they ever open with these 4 killer tunes? 76 was a smoking year from what I hear on archives being a bit too young to see them then.Just a jamming rock-nroll band in 77 a pristine band but this year was kinda primal imo just letting it ride. this is easily 1 of my personal top 5 Comes A Time. The Eyes /Dancin is an all out jam and the Playin' to start 2nd set just a monster. Great show real decent recording 5 and 4.5 here.

Subject: Overlooked show
This show contains some mighty fine playing. Keith is especially present this evening. His phrasing is quite nuanced. Incredible version of TMNS. Great sound.

Subject: Another 76 great
I'm finding more and more that this year is among my favourites and I'd go out on a limb to say the most underrated. The first set is stellar(check out the US blues and Crazy Fingers>Comes a Time)> the second set is even better with one of the most epic post-74 Playin's (very cool to hear the seeds of what would become Fire). The Eyes>Dancin is also incredible. Thanks again to Charlie Miller for putting this together.

Subject: this is what made the GD special
I was at this show, it remains one of my favorite of the 70 shows I saw. 2 weeks before the 1976 bicentennial in Philly, a US flag (with a fan to make it fly!) on Keith's piano, they open with US blues! Jer is playin to the flag, the place went nuts. First 4 songs, unique start to this show. Second set , ending with SAT night (it was a Tuesday!), never heard them do that again. No encore but it was such a great show no one minded!!

Subject: To all the Donna-Doubters,
To all the Donna-Doubters, this is the show where she shines. For any and all of her so-called screeching that so many of you lament, she truly redeems herself here. Cassidy, The Music Never Stopped, Looks Like Rain, these songs were never as good without her and Bobby harmonizing.

Subject: CM and 1976
This is one of my favorite Playin's as well as one of my all time favorite shows. Thanks as always to CM for his time and efforts. This run is a strong example of why 1976 is such a great year.

Subject: What a great show...
I am really enjoying this show and Crazy Fingers>Comes A Time is worth a listen (or two, or three....). That's not the only gem here. I love the Eyes, the jam just kinda takes over the band for the first five minutes or so. Mr. Miller, thank you and another job very well done.

Thank you to all involved with this project.

First soundboard available on the archive of this historic concert.

The AUD patches are mixed in well and don't deteriorate the listening experience.

A powerful Crazy Fingers>Comes A Time pairing makes for a most excellent blastoff.

Playin' includes first riffs on "Happiness is Drumming", the eventual "Fire on the Mountain" instrumental. Also quite Spaced out and different from the rock-you-to-the-moon "Phil and Ned" esque 1974 Playin. Sounds like hard-bop out of the Happiness Jam too.

Thank you Charlie Miller. Please keep doing what you do.

Sounds like their playing in your living room.
